1. To look without a concept is to be aware of the observer and the thing observed - 20 May 1967 Duration: 88 minutes • Violence and sorrow are not limited to the West or the East; it is part of the human structure, psychologically. • Is it possible to bring about a change radically, a total revolution in the psyche itself, not through time? • The first and last freedom is when the mind is totally free from concepts and the mechanical process of building a formula. • It is an art to look, which is much more important than any art in the world, any painting, music or book; because when we can look so totally and completely, being directly in contact, there is an ending. • Q: If one has cancer, how can one be free from death? 2. Where there is pleasure there is the shadow of pain - 21 May 1967 Duration: 83 minutes • The whole movement of living, which is relationship, is a movement in action. • What is consciousness? When do you say, 'I am conscious, I am aware, I am attentive'? • Is there actually a division between the conscious and the unconscious, or it is a total movement, operating all the time? • The mind that pursues pleasure must inevitably invite its opposite, which is pain. The two go together; they are not separate. • You cannot see totally when you are making effort. • Q: If you love your own child, your attention to your child is fairly complete, but if you are a teacher you cannot give attention to all the students. 3. Is it possible to renew the mind? - 24 May 1967 Duration: 81 minutes • When the mind is living through imagination and thought, it is incapable of living in the complete fullness of the present. • Thought has created time, not chronological time but psychological time. That is, 'I will be,' 'I should be.' • Is it possible for the brain to be quiet, to give an interval between the old and the new? This interval is the timeless nature in which thought cannot possibly enter. • That which has continuity is repetitive, which is time. It's only when time comes to an end there is something new taking place. • To die every day to every problem, every pleasure, and not carry over any problem at all; so the mind remains tremendously attentive, active, clear. • Since love is not desire or pleasure, how does one come upon it? • Q: Is the feeling of responsibility a part of the order and discipline you were talking about? • Q: Why don't people get angry with what you are saying? 4. Can thought stop? - 28 May 1967 Duration: 72 minutes • When there is a process of recognition it is the projection of the past. The mind is always functioning within the field of time, which is of memory. Can the mind go beyond that? • What is pleasure and what is desire? • How is it possible, without control, subjugation or denying, for thought not to allow itself to interfere? • When all authority of every kind is put aside, denied, then you can find out for yourself. • When you are completely attentive, you see. It is only love that sees - not thought, the mind or the intellect. One has to learn how to look, how to hear. • Q: Could you distinguish between what you mean by the word 'recognizing' and 'being aware'? • Q: How is one to break off a concept that one has carefully built? 5. It is only a very silent mind that can actually see - 30 May 1967 Duration: 82 minutes • Conflict exists only when there are two opposing things: fear and non-fear, violence and non-violence. • A mind that is in a state of inquiry is entirely different from a mind that is seeking. Seeking implies effort, conformity, authority and therefore conflict. • Without space in which there is no boundary, the mind is incapable of coming upon immeasurable reality. • It is only a silent mind that can perceive, actually see, not a chattering mind, a controlled mind, a mind that is tortured, suppressed, yielding or indulging.J. KRISHNAMURTI Jiddu Krishnamurti (May 12, 1895–February 17, 1986) was a world renowned writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. His subject matter included: the purpose of meditation, human relationships, the nature of the mind, and how to enact positive change in global society. Krishnamurti was born into a Telugu Brahmin family in what was then colonial India. In early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and high-ranking theosophist C.W. Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Society headquarters at Adyar in Madras (now Chennai). He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a "vehicle" for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the world-wide organization (the Order of the Star) established to support it. He claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world as an individual speaker, speaking to large and small groups, as well as with interested individuals. He authored a number of books, among them The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti's Notebook. :" In addition, a large collection of his talks and discussions have been published. At age 90, he addressed the United Nations on the subject of peace and awareness, and was awarded the 1984 UN Peace Medal. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at home in Ojai, California. His supporters, working through several non-profit foundations, oversee a number of independent schools centered on his views on education – in India, England and the United States – and continue to transcribe and distribute many of his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and other writings, publishing them in a variety of formats including print, audio, video and digital formats as well as online, in many languages.
